This hidden little hideaway in the Lower Himalayas is food for the soul. My husband and I spent the weekend there with another couple and their two teenage daughters and we all found it to be a serene experience. It is the perfect place to totally disconnect. No televisions, refrigerators, or wired internet connections to pull you back to the... More

We stayed at the Himalayan Hideaway Lodge in February 2014. It is a beautiful, quaint place to stay. The food is excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. There are many things to do in the area during the day, all of which the staff will arrange for you. There is river rafting, hiking, touring, etc. You can... More

From the word go it was an experience beyond all expectations. We were greeted by heavy rains as we drove to this idyllic abode tucked away in the hills. The visibility was near zero and we were out of network boundaries. Slowly the mountains embraced us and we lost the world, except for a few cars zipping past us. All... More

The sort of review that you have written is truly "heart warming" for me as the owner. Its wonderful to know that you have picked up on the little nuances of the interiors and the exteriors and you have "felt" exactly what we wanted to communicate!! We don't want to pontificate or "tell" people how they should enjoy their holiday.....that's... More

We were there over the weekend for the Rishikesh Half Marathon. Our room was spacious and comfortable overlooking the Ganga. A nice retreat with no television or mobile/3G connectivity to intrude. The small restaurant on premise served excellent food, including chicken and beer. Good for those of us deprived in a dry and vegetarian place. Good service and nice staff.

Many thanks for your encouraging comments.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful encouragement! The Hideaway does seem "hidden" away even though its in plain sight on the main road! :) This is mostly because of our mature garden, I think. For your information we are developing more nature trails around the Hideaway. Of course the beach camp is not far away from the Lodge.... More

This was the perfect place to stay in Rishikesh, the lodge's rustic charm fully in keeping with the natural environment.

This lovely leafy retreat sits on a hillside beyond Rishikesh and above the Ganga. It's the perfect place for stressed out city dwellers seeking peace, calm and fresh air! it would also make a good stop on a pan-Indian tour for foreign visitors.

Many thanks for your supportive words. Do come again. Because of our local and indigenous garden, we remain quite green even at the height of summer in April and May and then the switch to the lush emerald green is spectacular when the rains come. Do come and enjoy all the different changes of season :) More
